It was quite the afternoon! I changed Abigail and fed her a noon, then Wyatt had his food delivered "fast food", that is through his feeding tube. After feeding, the Occupational Therapist came in to talk about bottle choices, tummy time and a few other milestones to watch for. A nurse came in to check each one of the babies hearing. Their nurse Genna reviewed the discharge procedure with Jessy Grace which includes Jack and I coming on Sunday to "stay in" through the night with Jessy Grace in a hospital room. This will give us a chance to do things on our own, however with a nurse near by if we need one. Tomorrow Jack and I will go up to the hospital for 2 or 3 feedings and also try to get the routine down better. We will also take Jessy Grace's car seat for her car seat test, and will learn to give her a bath, put her supplement in her milk to add extra calories and give her vitamins.
After all of that it was time to feed the little girl. We are working to get them all on a 4 hour schedule, so today we spread Jessy Grace's feeding to 1 pm. So the new times we are working toward are 9, 1 and 5, so 9 am, noon, 1 pm, 9 pm, midnight and 5 am. Much better to me than 8, 12, 3 and 6! Jessy Grace nursed for her feeding and did an awesome job. I changed little mans diaper and clothes and by that time was worn out!!!! Whew, God is going to have to give me some more energy!!
Here are the snap shots from today. They are all growing so big and strong.
So Jessy Grace will come home Monday and the goal will be for the other 2 to come home at the later part of next week. We do not have days yet, but it all depends on how they do with their feedings and keeping up through the week. They are 1/2 way there and are progressing every day. We are so blessed!
